I worked at Petroplan full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Fantastic company to gain exposure to the Oil & Gas world! Thorough in-house Oil & Gas, Recruitment and Database training is provided - it's apparent Petroplan invests in its training resources to ensure Recruiters get the right support from the get go, helping them deliver and be the best they can be.
Benefits are competitive from salary, holiday entitlement, pension and private care! - you really wouldn't get this from any other mid-sized recruitment company, it's a sell.
Stakeholders played an integral part during my time at Petroplan, they were approachable and accommodating, you are seen as an equal and loved like a son or daughter - the Company still has a bit of that "family-run" feel.
Flexible and understanding employers if you need to get away for personal reasons - not that it's a common trait, knowing there's flexibility there can say a lot about a Company and its culture.Cons
Work-life balance superb, you make it your own, you get what you put in - this is no way put upon you by management or expected.
Making wrong hiring decisions which has had huge impact on teams - any Company going through change will experience these mistakes, Petroplan aren't the only ones and they shouldn't be scrutinised for it.
You will have challenging moments with other Recruiters from time to time but the end goal remains the same - and anyway it's recruitment after all, you're bound to come across some funny Divas and stroppy Kevin's so embrace them!Advice to ManagementAdvice
Retention is key, recruitment companies tend to have a high turnover but please continue to listen to your staff - I'm referring to all divisions; those who bill and those who are seen as "overheads".
Keep up with the marketing campaigns! You're doing great!
I've learnt how important Business Development is moving into a 360 role, maybe this could be enforced a little more with the right individual leading it or Trainer.
Middle management are not educated on how to correctly approach sensitive topics for example; managing a Probation Period of an employee - managing this incorrectly has the potential to damage the Company's reputation. Train middle management or exclude them from the process entirely.
Nevertheless, my overall experience has been a good one, I would recommend Petroplan to anyone!
